Originally from Miami, FL, I developed an interest in pottery after writing a couple of stories on potters for The Enquirer Journal in Monroe, NC. I settled in the area in the 1980s, covering Seagrove for the Courier-Tribune in Asheboro. I stepped behind the potter's wheel full time in 1986, when I opened up WILD ROSE POTTERY in Whynot, just south of Seagrove. I now own and operate FROM THE GROUND UP, just south of Seagrove. I also play Irish flute.
We've got pots from the wood kiln, pots from the electric kiln, new director's chairs, a new light fixture.... We're almost ready for this year's Catawba Valley Pottery and Antiques Festival in Hickory, March 23.
Hope to see some you there.
Here's some pots from the latest wood firing:
